Killzone: Shadow Fall getting two bundles, Sony confirms
The Killzone: Shadow Fall bundle which was leaked last month on Amazon France has been confirmed by Sony. The firm has also announced a second bundle for the next-gen shooter.
The first bundle will run you €499/£429 and comes with a copy of the game, two DualShock 4 controllers and the PlayStation Camera.
Bought separately, all of this would cost you arouond £503 give or take, so the bundle would save you £70 – as of post time.
A second European bundle will come with the game, PS4 console, and just one DualShock 4 controller for €439. Unlike the one above, it does not include the camera. (Thanks, CVG)
“I can officially confirm that the answer is yes [Sony will bring the bundle to the UK],” Sony UK boss Fergal Gara told Eurogamer today at the Eurogamer Expo. “It’ll be similarly benchmarked in euro equivalent. PlayStation 4 is £349 and €399, so it will be the same equivalent.
“It will be no more than a tenner either way [of the Xbox One £429 UK price] depending on what conversation rate we use on the given day.”
Sony will announce several new PS4 bundles tomorrow, Eurogamer understands, and those who have pre-ordered PS4 now have the option to upgrade to one of these upcoming bundles.
“It [the mega bundle] is in limited volume, and therefore it is probably going to go mainly to current pre-order customers, then follow-up volume may well be post-Christmas,” Gara said. “But there are other bundles that also represent incredibly good value. It’s not just about having a good base price. We want to offer value in every way we can.
“Starting yesterday, our retail partners are contacting their pre-order customers in order, so starting with the first, working up to when they run out of that special bundle, saying, we now have clarity on exactly what PlayStation 4 bundles we have to offer for day one. Everybody who has pre-ordered in the expectation they’re getting just the PS4, including the DualShock 4 and the headset – the basic configuration.
“But as we’ve worked through the details and worked through the options we’ve come up with some great bundle offers. And it is only fair the first people in the queue get first chance to get that.”
Killzone: Shadow Fall is a launch title for PS4 and a livestream of the EG Expo pertaining to the game is set to go off in about 30 minutes.
